I'm pretty famous on canadiancaraudio.com & ecoustics subwoofer forums. I had always over looked caco. I make progressive house (with lots of bass), playin drums 18+ years, go to school (electrical apprentice soon) and work (i shovel soil haha). My last system was a sunfire trunk - 05 re xxx 12 on a visonik 1500w amp. they both broke within 2 days of each other, which was actually a good thing because on the third day my car was stolen and i had taken out the XXX and the amp but I lost the Atomic APX i switched out, $1000 flip-out touch-screen, ported box, about $2000. Next time I'll insure the stereo and get a better alarm!
Now I'm starting fresh, trying to work my arse off to get a aq 3500d.1 and either 2 18's @ 1 or 3 15's @ .8 for a "wall" where the back seat of my alero would be (basically a huge box with sub & port forward with beauty panels - not the "proper" way to do it but who cares!). Singer 270A planned, 1 or 2 XS batts. About 12 cubes @ 30-35 Hz.
I'm in Canada and I'm finding it SO hard to buy stuff online because everyone is selling the cool gear in the states.
Why can't I post on the classifieds yet? I'm trying to buy an aq 3500d.1 before someone else does. my last amp was 1500 @ 1 @ 14V. Can't believe I'm spending big this time for an amp thatll do maybe 5k @ .8 @ 15V. not the car i want, either. i reeeally wanted a hatch back but insurance would be too much until a couple months when I turn 25.
i know a lot about sealed & ported box designs. not a pro, lack experience but the knowledge is there (QTC for sealed box & can design ported very accurately).
FYI the RE box calc is a horror to work with, when calculating ported just do it the long way on the 12volts' calculators.
box designing has me doing math i never thought I'd be doing (/1728 anyone? never would have known that lol).
